How the recharge is managed

The charging infrastructure, born from the collaboration between Opel Motorsport and the German partner eLoaded, uses energy generated from renewable sources taken from the public electricity grid. The medium power current is sent to a transformer specifically adapted for the needs of the rally (“DcSource”), the so-called Power House. This avoids the presence of a cache and the maximum power of 2.0 megawatts is supplied to 18 charging points, one of which is located at the tent for the assistance of each car participating in the competition.

Each charging point is capable of supplying the vehicle with up to 140 kW of power, while the Opel Corsa-e Rally can charge a maximum of 100 kW in direct current (Dc). The rally car’s 50 kWh battery recharges to 80 percent in about 30 minutes. Even during shorter stops, recharging for subsequent special stages is therefore not a problem.

The charging columns are not tied to a fixed structure, but can be positioned freely and independently. The eLoaded system is modular and can therefore be adapted to the needs of each user and be used for a very wide range of applications, including use in the rally assistance area.

Campionato Adac Opel e-Rally Cup 2021

A total of eight special stages are planned, unfortunately without spectators due to the restrictions due to the pandemic.

The Adac Opel e-Rally Cup 2021 is divided into seven races, among which the international round of the Barum Czech Rally Zlín, the Czech stage valid for the Fia European Rally Championship, stands out on the last weekend of August.
